Qualcomm unveils the 215 Mobile Platform

Qualcomm unveils the 215 Mobile Platform”

And, for all we know, there's no guarantee that all the new features of the Snapdragon 429 smartphone SoC will carry over to the Snapdragon Wear processor. The whole point behind possibly naming this new wearables chipset "Snapdragon 429 Wear" is because Qualcomm is basing it on the company's current Snapdragon 429 chipset, one found in HMD Global's Nokia 3.2 and Nokia 3.1. Since the chipset is powerful enough to run a smartphone, it would be a significant step up from the Wear 3100, which is just an incremental upgrade over the years-old Snapdragon Wear 2100. It means that the platform might not power devices running KaiOS' smart feature platform.

The timeline for the release of the Snapdragon Wear-SoC is unclear, but it is expected to be ready for release sometime next year.

The Snapdragon 215 focuses at markets like India, where 4G VoLTE is becoming a new normal. There's also dual-SIM support with VoLTE on both cards.

First is that the platform includes a 64bit CPU which is a first fr the 200 series of Snapdragon SoCs. It supports 64-bit operating system like Android Go and will be future proof when Google mandates 64-bit apps starting August 1, 2019.

At the centre of 215 mobile platform is Adreno 308 GPU. However, it has Cortex A53 cores instead of the aging A7 CPUs. Qualcomm says it is capable of delivering 20+ hours of voice calls and 10+ hours of video playback.

Snapdragon 215 also aims to modernize entry-level devices by offering support for taller aspect ratio.

The new Qualcomm 215 chipset brings in the 64-bit architecture to the entry-level segment rather than the 32-bit architecture of its previous iteration, which further helps in running the standard 64-bit applications swiftly. "We're raising the bar for mass market devices and enabling experiences that were never before possible in the 2-series", said Kedar Kondap, VP of Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

The Snapdragon 215 houses dual 12-bit image signal processors (ISPs) that enable support for dual rear camera setup and a single front camera module with up to 13-megapixel sensor. Now, according to a report from WinFuture, Qualcomm is preparing a new Wear chipset either called the Snapdragon 429 Wear or the Snapdragon Wear 2700. The chipset also will support HD+ display with 1560 X 720 resolution which would let more budget phones to enter the market soon with the chipset inside.
